Born in a musical family, Zhang has a solid grasp of the Chinese traditional music.  He turned to the marketing business after being a singer and a dancer, and returned to the entertainment industry as a successful entrepreneur.

“In a changing society, you will fall behind unless you are creative and keep learning and changing,” said Zhang while sharing his inspiring story with the audience.
